i have been coveting so many great pieces of vintage jewelry on Etsy lately, that i had forgotten that i have some lovely things of my own.
my mama gave me these little screw-on earrings from her collection of old jewelry. i love the drabby colors and that they look like little gilt framed paintings.
this necklace came from my great great Aunt Leaflet. the pressed flowers have such simple, understated beauty, no? there is a mirror on the other side, and the contents of the pendant can be removed by unscrewing the bale at the top. i am considering slipping in a piece of a vintage dictionary page over the flowers for a different look.
and now for a thrifting/shop update...
i've gone thrifting twice this week already! last night i found some wonderful framed lithograph prints and an old beveled mirror in a gesso/gilt wood frame. i have decided to keep the mirror, along with some of the prints, and i will be showing photos of them in a couple days. but for now, here are two little treasures that i just added to the shop!
